Today I will remember my mom by sharing some of her beautiful work.

Shoo Fly Star by Joyce Handy Reynolds
lovely quilts, I love the Shoo Fly Star. I don’t go by patterns either.
Thank you – I inherited none of my mom’s talent, but I do treasure these mementos.
Absolutely gorgeous! An incredibly talented woman. Thanks for sharing those.
Very talented! Thanks xxx
Ah, your mum made beautiful quilts, I can see. I especially love the blue ring one. And all hand stitched too. Amazing!
They are very beautiful and must have taken ages to make.
Thank you. Actually, my mom loved quilting so much that she tore right through them! She’d have a couple of projects going at once.
Beautiful! Love pretty quilts– how special!
I made one once and I can soooo appreciate the WORK. Probably won’t ever do it again!
I can’t make a stitch, Kim. No talent there, but she sure did beautiful work. My sisters and I all are very lucky to have her quilts. Thanks for posting! xxx
Martha, nice work by Mom!! And if you’ve never made a quilt, you’d never know how hard it was to make Love Blue Rings. She was very talented!!
I inherited none of her handiwork talent, Eileen. Thank you. She never used a sewing machine, insisting on all hand-stitching!
Martha, your Ma’s patchwork is beautiful. I’m sure she would be tickled pink to know that it is now being displayed all over the World via your wonderful blog. One of my favourite museums in England is the American Museum in Bath
They have a fantastic display of old American patchwork quilts there. If ever you are over in the UK, go to Bath and check it out 🙂
Thanks, Lottie. I would love to visit Bath and the museum!
What beautiful quilts!
What a beautiful tribute to your mom and her talents. Made me think of my mom and her art of knitting and crocheting. Her true talent was that she never used a pattern, but rather created one of a kind masterpieces on her own.
Thank you, my friend! xxx
